Happy New Year everyone! What are you up to tonight? I’m going to a ball (?! I know!!!). I have a strict anti-New Years rule but this is for DH’s work, so I’m being forced into going. So I’m just about to do my toes, I did my nails last night, and I had my hair done this afternoon. DH’s tux is hanging in the diningroom, and my stepson is on his way to his grandmother’s for the night. Hope you all have a fun and safe night!!!

@misskoala: Can we trade? I really don’t want to go out. Sigh.

Tha ball sounds fun! We’re going to a fancy dress dinner party at a friend’s place. There should be about ten of us altogether. Cocktails, a delicious, many course meal, and champagne at midnight – what more can a girl ask for?

@bakerella: Jealous! I love getting dressed up like that and love seeing Darling Husband in his tux even more – boy does he look HOT in it! Can we see the dress you are wearing?
We are just staying home, pulling the matress out to the living room, lighting a fire, having some seafood and wine, and just going to enjoy our rare time alone. Last weekend before Darling Husband ventures back to work, so we have to make it count.

I’m on call for work so we will be having a casual night with friends, a few of which are pregnant so I won’t feel so alone not being able to drink.

@bakerella: Ooh, I want to see your dress, too!
Tonight we’ve been invited to a couple of parties (one is a poker night and the other a costume party) but I have a feeling we’re going to stay in and enjoy our first new year’s in our new house! We’re just not feeling enthused about going out so this might end up being a cozy night in.
Stay safe everyone & happy new year!

Happy New Year everyone!
Bakarella, a ball sounds lovely!
Tks, we spent our new years in a similar way! We cooked and had a romantic meal and just had a low-key night. Our new years already passed since I’m back in Greece.
Hope you guys have a wonderful time!

Happy New Year! A ball sounds like a ton of fun.
Fiance and I were invited to my coworker’s party so I bought a fun shiny dress, only to find out it’s going to be super casual. /sigh Maybe you guys can help me salvage it, I was thinking of putting on some leggings and a black cardigan?

Happy New Year’s Everyone!
After some unfortunate general winter sick feelings we’ll be staying in tonight but that should be fun too! There’s a big batch or chex mix and mocha punch with my name on it.

Here’s the dress, don’t have a photo of me in it, I’ll post a photo once we get ready 🙂 It’s a black and white ball, so it’s a floor length black dress. I got my hair done earlier today, he did sort of a low side pony with curls. Very simple. I have big black dangly earrings too.
And here’s my nails, I did a combo of at home Shellac system and Sally Hansen nail strips. Hopefully it lasts a couple days. So far so good! Sorry for the gigantic photos!!! Woah!

@Aure: I think that sounds cute!!! You can definitely get away with it in the New Years spirit!
@raccoon: Awww feel better! I’ve been battling a wicked cold this week, it finally abated this morning! I went to bed at 6:30 Thursday night!!!
Everyone sounds like they have a great night planned!

@Aure: Even at super casual, I would still wear that. Who doesn’t want to dress up for NYE if they are going out? THe cardigam will keep you warm. That dress is HOT!
@bakerella: WOWZERS! The top is sooo pretty! I can’t wait to see the pics of you both. You will have to let me know how those nails work. I love new beauty products.

@tksjewelry: Thanks! I got it on sale for $80, score!! There was another one I was looking at that I loved but it was $200 (marked down from $400) and it wasn’t worth it for a few hours of wear. Plus this one leaves room for eating, lol!
